I was amazed to see that anyone said that you could train by yourself. Maybe you can do excercises and weapon work but these are the equivalent of swinging your squash racket on your own and presuming that this teaches you how to play squash.

I would even go as far as to say you can't do proper aikido with just one other person (i.e. you need to train with a variety of people to realise that people are different) - thats if you want to do aikido as a self-defence.
